Question about AOpen F55PS (Black, Silver) 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen not appearing straight away

When I turn the computer on in the morning, the screen doesn't power-up straight away. It started taking 3-5 minutes before anything appeared on the screen and over about a months time, it is taking up to a couple of hours. The LED on the power switch turns green when the rest of the computer is turned on, yet, there isn't even so much as a flicker from the screen. Once the screen comes up, you can turn it off, then back on again and it powers up straight away. Have swapped monitors and even used this one on a different computer, with the same result.

Re: Screen not appearing straight away

It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems till it warms up. Turn you computer on and while the monitor is displaying black and the power LED is green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. A 15" LCD monitor is probably not an economically repairable problem unless you have access to really cheap parts and have the skills and tools to do the repair yourself.

If the power light is on, but the screen never appears to light up, either the backlight or the power inverter have failed.

LG flatron w2230s-pf monitor only displays for 3 seconds, then the screen goes black. power is still on, and you can very faintly see the image. if you turn it off and on again, it will display correctly...

The problem is in the inverter board, the most common problem is bad capacitors, inverter transformers, or back light issues. The power supply and inverter share the same board, attempts can be made to repair or replace the board, if a professional gets involved you are further ahead in buying new.

DCLCD 19" flatscreen won't turn on correctly

Same problem here, but after using the plugging/unplugging method it eventually stopped all together. So, I took it to a local monitor repair shop (AM Stereo, Seattle). The problem is a power supply issue where the capasitors go bad. They fixed the monitor by replacing the capacitors for $70. In there experience, all monitors, regardless of brand, tend to use the same cheap capacitors which fail. He replaced them with better quality capacitors which may make this monitor better than it ever was. I'm back in business with a great monitor!

Screen rolls

I'm writing to you on a screen that is rolling and sometimes flickering right now. I've tried 3 different screens on the same outlet, and they all have the same problem.

1. If you have any speakers near your monitor, try moving them away, this might help because they might not be shielded enough.

2. Try another screen, if the problem persists, it may be your power outlet.

3. If you don't want to spend money on a new screen, spend some time looking for a 3-prong grounding adapter.

I used the 3-prong grounding adapter, those little adapters that plug into the wall using 2 prongs, and then you can plug a 3 prong appliance into them on the other site, and it helped make the rolls not appear as often, and not as dark.

I think it is something with my power or the plug I am using.

Hope this may have helped a tiny bit

Philps LCD Monitor Won't turn on Straight away

That is definitely a problem with the monitor...if its under warranty have it replaced...if not...start looking for a replacement it hardly ever is worth it to have them repaired (shipping, parts, labor is usually a little less than a new monitor). Sorry
